  • Oops.

  • Oh. Oops.

  • Oh. Oops.

  • I made a mistake three times. My name's Ronnie. I forgot that

  • I was going to make lessons today, and instead of wearing, you know, like normal clothes,

  • I decided to be a lion. I guess I really messed up. I'm sorry.

  • [Laughs] I'm not sorry at all.

  • I'm going to teach you by request from Germany-hi, guys-what to say when stuff goes wrong. So

  • you make a mistake; everyone makes mistakes, it's normal, don't worry. We have certain

  • slang phrases that you can say, makes you sound cool. Rainier, if you

  • want to sound cool, you can do this.

  • Most popular ones, we would say: "I screwed up."

  • or "I messed up." or "I f*@ked up."

  • We can also say: "I mucked it up." All of these expressions just mean:

  • "Oops, I made a mistake."

  • So you can say, for example: "I messed up my job interview."

  • Or: "Oh my god, I really f*@ked up my car."

  • It means that maybe you had an accident and now your car is destroyed.

  • So all of these just means there was an accident, or a mistake, or something bad happened. So,

  • be careful. These are phrasal verbs, so we have: "screw up", "messed up", "f*@ked up",

  • and "mucked up".

  • Then we have nouns. So these are describing usually a person. You can say:

  • "somebody is a screw up", "someone is a f*@k up".

  • It means that they always make mistakes. Maybe they're a little bit stupid.

  • They're just not doing things as they should. You will see this a

  • lot in movies. There's always, like, the teenage boy, and his dad's like:

  • "You're such a f*@k up! You can't do anything right!"

  • And the kid: "Wah", and drama happens. So we use these

  • a lot in movies as well.

  • Something that I remember my grandmother and my mother saying was: "Oh dash", "Oh darn".

  • Now, these are... We'll call them mother and grandmother expressions. They're not offensive,

  • they're not slang. It's kind of a nice way to say: "Oops." I remember when I was a child

  • there was a TV show called The Mad Dash, and I was like:

  • "Gran, you should be on that show, because you say: 'Oh dash.'"

  • "Dash" means to run quickly, so I couldn't understand why

  • she was wanting to run quickly. It must be a grandmother thing. You might hear people

  • also say: "Oh my gosh" or "Oh my goodness". These are just ways for people who don't want

  • to say: "Oh my god". Some people get offended if you say: "Oh my god", so instead of saying:

  • "god", they say: "goodness" or "gosh". "Oh my gosh".

  • Okay? But it basically means: "Oh my god",

  • or "darn", or "dash", or "oops". Okay? Mm-kay.

  • We have another expression. You might know: "That sucks." It's a kind of an older expression.

  • We also have an expression that something blows. You can say, past tense: "I blew it.

  • I really blew it." It means: "I really messed up or I really made a mistake. I'm sorry."

  • So you can use it like: "I blew the job interview." or: "I screwed up the job interview.",

  • "I messed up the job interview." Another way we use this is to talk about money. You can say:

  • "I blew all my money on beer." Which is not a good thing. It means that you spent

  • all of your money only on beer. Don't do that. You need to, you know, save money for beer,

  • save for everything. But if you blow your money on something it means you spent it all.

  • So you'll hear this, again, a lot in movies, we use it all the time.

  • One thing that is another common word that we use a lot in computers, maybe you see if

  • your computer's in English is for technology, something crashes. You'll see it in a lot

  • of sci-fi movies, too. If something crashed it means it's broken temporarily. Not for

  • a long time. So: "My p.c. or my computer crashed." This is only for software or electronics.

  • So if your computer crashes, it means you're working on it or you're doing something, and

  • then all of a sudden - gone. What's happened to your computer? Probably when you're doing

  • important things it just decides not to work anymore. So your computer crashed. You can say:

  • "My computer bit it." or "My computer choked."

  • It just means it's broken, it doesn't work anymore.

  • You can say: "I bit it!" I used to say this a lot when I was skiing. If I fell, it was:

  • "Oh, I bit it again." It just means you made a mistake or you failed. "I choked on my test."

  • It's not this. Again: "I bit it" and "I choked" means you failed the test.

  • So: "I choked the job interview.", "I choked on something." It just means you didn't do well.

  • We have one more expression, it's actually a movie. And the reason why I'm telling you

  • about this movie is because it's from Canada, it's a Canadian movie. You might see this

  • expression, it's kind of old: "FUBAR!" "FUBAR" means "f*@ked up beyond recognition". So we

  • would use this if we're really, really, really, really drunk, like:

  • "Oh my god, I was FUBAR'd last night." It's an older expression,

  • but it is a good movie if you want to learn about

  • Canadian culture.

  • So the next time you get FUBAR or the next time you really muck something up or mess

  • it up, don't worry. Even if you blew it, it doesn't matter. It's just a mistake. You'll

  • hopefully get another chance and you can make it right.

  • Til next time, rawr.
